    ST. PETERSBURG, MARCH 17 (RIA Novosti-Northwest correspondent Dina Danilova) - A ship has been built for the Greek Navy at the Almaz wharf. Ready for dock trials, it is a third landing hovercraft of the Zubr class, made for Greece on Project 12322. Spokesmen of the Greek Navy and Russia's Rosoboronexport concern signed an acceptance act today, reports the Almaz press service.

    Dock trials are scheduled to start toward the month's end, and the Greek Navy expects to receive the vessel in July.

    Greece possesses two similar ships by now, and option talks are underway for a fourth.

    The Almaz wharf specializes in patrol and combat vessels since 1914. It is currently known for new-generation series and for the Zubrs - currently, the world's biggest landing ships.
